by the tragedy in boston during the boston marathon. and today fbi agents interviewed catherine russell. the widow at the parent home in rhode island. agents were seen leaving carrying several bags. meanwhile the wall street journal is reporting female dna was found on the explosives used by the bombers. but investigators are not certain whether it belongs to victim or someone who perhaps handled the bomb. and high powered lawyer judy clark of san diego joining the team representing dzhokhar tsarnaev and represented union i bomber and loughner and others. clark secured life sentences for both of them rather than the death penalty. same thing with tsarnaev. doth >> well there is a lot of roas roasting going on today. spencer christian is here with a pretty steamy weather forecast. >> more roasting on the way da dan. temperatures are rising. humidity is low. and fire risk on the increase. accu-weather forecast coming. >> thanks also tonight. local coast guard members trade in the cutter for new set of wheels. coast to coast mission for america wounded vets. >> bay area residents
catherine russell. tamerlan was killed during a firefight with police last week after he and his brother carjacked a vehicle. sources warned that even if russell's and dna is found on the cooker, it does not prove she was involved in the preparation of the bomb. in fact, she says she was unaware of per husband's plans. >> the bombing of the boston marathon will have an impact on this year's bay to breakers even. new security measures will be put into place and old ones will be enforced and better as san francisco tries to make this a safe one for everyone. kron4 will tran is live in san francisco to talk about what is going to happen. >> if you are an unregistered runner you will be pulled from the race. if they see the to do not have a built in place that will walk up to you and see if you have a bill and that will action to put it on. they will be a cue from the race. when you register, they get all your information and this has always been on the books. because of what happened in boston it will be strictly enforced. they will also have extra policemen at the beginning and the ending
that evidentiary information with a suspect. and of course, we have a suspect, catherine russell. obviously what happens when there is no match? then where do we go? the fingerprint might be something we can check against a database. it might be extremely important information. we finally have a lead. but there also may be other information we haven't learned about yet. there may be something else's genetic profile on another fragment that hasn't been reported. >> well, it will be fascinating to find out if there's any match at all. of course, there is that potential for all of the dna that was actually at the bombing site itself. more on that. i hope you'll join us as we dig deeper. as the investigators do this kind of work, they're also trying very hard to get inside the heads of the crime suspects. in this particular case, they may literally want to do that, literally. physically examine tamerlan tsarnaev's brain. you know that tamerlan tsarnaev was a boxer. a two-time new england golden glove champion. you play not know boxer and football players and soldiers have cte, repeated blows to the
